Running Club

Running Club is for students in grades 3-5 who are interested in getting fit and making friends while building endurance to run a 5K!

Students will learn a number of skills that will enhance not only their running but also personal health. Some of these skills are: proper stretching, setting goals, pacing, teamwork, types of shoes and clothing to wear, in addition to much more. All activities are supervised by a qualified person as well as volunteers.

Participants gear their spring training towards the DeKalb 5k Dash which will be held at James R. Watson. This program will take everyone where they are at and seek to build on their skills.

Running can be a way of helping students achieve many things beyond the scope of just running!
